Explanation. 

The fess gules was used by a member of the family who the author sup- 
posed was our ancestor, and this coat of arms his, but subsequent researches 
have proved that a chevron gules was used by his ancestors, and the correc- 
tion may be made as soon as the connecting link between the English and 
American families is substantiated. 

Another line of the family, before A.D. 1600, placed 3 escallops ar. on the 
fess. 

In 1584, a chevron was used in place of the fess by the Thweng families of 
Upper Helmsley and Heworth : at present these families (according to Burke) 
bear on a red shield 9 gold popinjays. 

* Heralds always draw this bird with her wings endorsed, wounding her 
breast with her beak. When in her nest, feeding her young ivith her blood, 
she is said to be in her piety.

INTRODUCTION. 



Of those who have never undertaken a work like this, few can 
realize what a vast amount of research and patient labor is re- 
quired properly to trace out a Family Tree or Genealogy. It is 
not the work of a few months only, but often occupies several 
years. It is only within a few years that public records of births, 
marriages and deaths have been properly kept, even in New 
England, and still in many parts of this country the keeping of 
such records is very imperfect, especially in the South and West. 
It is a matter of regret that this important branch of history has 
been so much neglected, as a great deal of valuable material is 
thereby forever lost. Those of our family who live in the South 
will understand this to be the reason why their records are so 
meagre, for I have availed myself of every opportunity at my 
command to obtain all the information possible, and the result 
is contained in the following pages. 

A village bearing the name of Thwing lies forty miles east of 
the city of York, about which Rev. Edward Payson Thwing, in 
his " Out-door Life in Europe," writes as follows : " One little 
hamlet, ten miles distant, was my Mecca this time, the town of 
Thwing. It was sought with the zeal of an antiquary simply, 
inasmuch as a volume bearing this humble monosyllable is in

preparation by a kinsman. Stopping at the rectory, my horse 
and driver were housed, for it was raining hard, and I strolled 
out for a walk to the venerable church and graveyard. At the 
College of Arms I had learned about Sir Robert de Thwing, 
knight, Lord of Kilton Castle, 1237, and his descendants who 
were engaged with Edward I. in the wars with Scotland. Here 
over the altar is a memorial window bearing the names of Arch- 
bishop Lamplough and Baron de Thwing. Mural tablets record 
other names. The stone figure of a priest holding a sacramental 
cup lies in the chancel, and there is a large baptismal font which 
is supposed to be seven hundred years old. The carvings of the 
stone porch are very elaborate, and heraldic insignia embellish 
the walls. The living is 900 pounds a year. The population 
of Thwing is but 365, and no resident has been known for years 
bearing this family name. The wolds, high open tracts, surround 
the village, and the fields show evidence of high cultivation. The 
cottages of the farm laborers are one story, stone, thatched or 
covered with earthen tiles." 

The name is derived from the Danish Twinge, to force, master, 
subdue ; or a name perhaps given from dexterity in archery. 
The name has been spelt in many ways, as follows : Twinge, 
Twenge, Twynge, Thwenge, Thwynge, Thweng, Thwinge, 
Thwing. 

As most of the family continue to keep the spelling as our 
mutual ancestor Benjamin Thwing, who died about A.D. 1672, 
wrote his name, I have concluded to adopt that mode of spelling 
in the genealogy of the American branches of the family, desig- 
nating where another mode of spelling is used as far as I can. 
Those who have dropped the "H" in the name are in Springfield, 
Waltham, and Monterey, Mass. ; Barre, Yt. ; New York City ; 
Boone, Iowa ; Whitewater, Wis. 



INTRODUCTION. 5 

The Coat of Arms, which I have placed on a previous page, 
is that of the family in England, of whose history a sketch is 
given on a subsequent page, but without laying claim to either 
as belonging to the American branch of the family, because I 
cannot connect the English family and that of Benjamin Thwing, 
the first to bear our name in this country, though I have little 
doubt that he was descended from the same stock. I have long 
wished to find out his immediate ancestry, but my efforts to estab- 
lish the connection have been hitherto unsuccessful. I hope that 
hereafter it may be accomplished by another, if not by myself. 
I have printed this historical sketch somewhat earlier than I had 
at first intended , in the hope of awakening an interest in mem- 
bers of the family to become acquainted with the facts I now 
have, to rectify errors and furnish me with further information 
on the subject. 

It has been thought that a meeting of the different branches of 
this family would be of interest. Four of the family have al- 
ready tried to bring about such a reunion, but so far without 
success. I sincerely hope that the sight of these records will 
stir the family to accomplish what that effort has failed to do. 

No doubt my book will be found incomplete, but I shall esteem 
it a favor if any omissions or errors are pointed out to me by 
those who find them. 

With regard to the matter of arranging the order and descent 
of generations and families, the plan adopted in this work com- 
prises a full list of the children of each head of a family directly 
under his or her name. Where the information concerning these 
children is small and their posterity not numerous, the whole 
record is generally given at once ; when otherwise, the name is 
designated by a number, and, carried forward and placed on a 
future page in brackets, it makes the starting point of a new

family. The Italic names enclosed in parentheses at the begin- 
ning of each new family carry the line back to the original ances- 
tor, in genealogical order } as designated by the figures at the 
right of each name and above the line. These small figures at 
the right of family names should be carefully noted in tracing 
out each record. 

I now take occasion to thank all who have assisted me in this 
work, and hope to continue to hear from them as often as they 
have anything to communicate. I shall always continue my 
interest in this genealogy, and shall add to it any facts I may 
receive, to appear in a future edition, or to assist the future 
compiler of a similar work. 



THE THWING FAMILY. 



THE TWENGE FAMILY IN ENGLAND 



The first of the name mentioned in history is Sir Robert de 
Twenge, a knight, and Lord of Kilton Castle, Cumberland I 
County, England, about the year 1231. He is called a bold 
Yorkshire knight, and put himself at the head of a secret associa- 
tion formed to resist the intrusion of Italian ecclesiastics into 
English benefices under the authority of Papal " Provisions." 
He had been deprived of his right of nomination to the one living 
or benefice he possessed, that of Luton, by a " Provision," and 
the movement which he led was secretly encouraged by the 
Barons and the Clergy. Threatening letters were addressed to 
the foreign priests ; the nuncios and other officers of the Pope 
were seized and one was killed ; the Pope's bulls were trampled 
under foot. The Pope Gregory IX. issued an angry bull (A.D. 
1232) in reference to these excesses which continued for some 
months, and Henry III. was alarmed. Twenge went to Rome, 
not as a penitent, but to plead manfully the cause he had taken 
in hand. He was the bearer of a remonstrance from the Earls 
of Chester, Winchester and other nobles. The Pope listened to 
the reasonable plea, and Twenge obtained the acknowledgment 
of his right to nominate to his family living, and a declaration 
that the Pope would not again usurp the rights of the lay patrons. 
He was sent by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, to Emperor Frederick,

II. (1240), and with Earl Richard arrived in Palestine, October, 
1240. He was succeeded by his son Makmaduke, who espoused 
Emma, sister and heiress of Duncan Darrell, and was succeeded 
by his son

ROBERT, Lord of Kilton Castle, who married Maud, the 
widow of Sir John de Oketon. Children : 

1. i. Marmaduke (Sir), his successor. 

ii. Richard (Sir), Lord of Boyville, who m. Juliana, 

relict of Sir Walter d'Awdre, knt. 
iii. Yvan, who had a son John. 

iv. A daughter, who m. William Constable, ancestor to the 

Constables of Flamborough. 
v. Alice, m. John Oketon. 



(1) MARMADUKE 4 (Robert, 3 Marmaduke, 2 Robert), succeeded 

his father as Lord of Kilton Castle. He married Lucia 
de Brus, sister of Peter de Brus of Skelton, and acquired 
by his marriage considerable estates in the county of 
York. He was taken prisoner at the battle of Lewes, 
and paid 700 marks for his liberty. In 1294 he had 
summons amongst the other great men of that time to 
repair with all speed to the king, and to afford him his 
advice touching the most important affairs of the realm. 
He had subsequently a military summons to march 
against the French. Children : 

2. Robert (Sir), his successor. 

3. Marmaduke (Sir). 

4. Edward. 

(2) ROBERT 5 (Marmaduke, 4 Robert, 3 Marmaduke, 2 Robert). 

He was Lord of Danby, as well as Lord of Kilton Castle. 
He married, first, Margaret Brus, by whom he had no 
issue ; second, Lucia , by whom he had

(3) MARMADUKE 5 {Marmaduke 4 Robert* Marmaduke, 2 
Robert). He succeeded his brother to the title. He 
took a very active part in the wars with the Scots. In 
the battle of Sterling, Sept. 10, 1297, the English forces 
were commanded by the earl of Surrey, and Cressingham 
the English Treasurer. In the account of the battle the 
historian says that Surrey still hesitated to cross the 
stream which separated the two armies, but Cressingham 
the Treasurer passionately exclaimed : " Why do we 
thus protract the war, and waste the king's treasures ? 
Let us fight as is our bounden duty.'' Surrey, contrary 
to his own better judgment, yielded, and gave orders for 
an immediate attack. Cressingham, along with Sir 
Marmaduke Twenge, a valiant and experienced soldier, 
led the van. When about one-half of the English forces 
had passed the bridge without opposition, Sir Marma- 
duke impetuously charged up hill with a body of heavy- 
armed cavalry, for the purpose of dislodging the Scots 
from their strong position. The consequence of this 
rash attack was fatal to the assailants, as the Scots, from 
their vantage ground, drove them headlong before them 
with their long spears. Sir William Wallace, who com- 
manded the Scots, defeated and totally routed the English 
after a hard contest. Twenty thousand men are believ- 
ed to have fallen in the battle and in the flight. The 
completeness of the ruin of the English army is attested 
by one of its knights having gained immortality by effect- 
ing a retreat for himself and some others. This was 
Sir Marmaduke de Twenge, who, when others spoke of 
throwing themselves into the river, with a small follow- 
ing cut his way to the bridge and recrossed it. But the 
recovery was of little avail to the rest of the army. The 
loss of the Scots was trifling. Sir Marmaduke de 
Twenge was left in command of Stirling Castle after this 
battle. In 1298 the castle was taken by Sir William 
Wallace, and he seized Sir Marmaduke de Twenge at a

conference. In the battle of Bannockburn, June 24, 
1314, the English had been totally defeated. Sir 
Marmaduke de Twenge contrived to conceal himself 
during the fury of the pursuit, and early next morning, 
when the king (Robert Bruce) was surveying the field 
of battle, he came forth from his hiding place, and ap- 
proaching the king, knelt down before him. " Welcome, 
Sir Marmaduke," said Bruce, to whom he was personally 
known, "whose prisoner are you?" "Yours, sir," 
answered the knight. " I receive you," replied the king, 
and retained him in his company for a considerable time, 
treating him with the utmost courtesy and ultimately 
dismissing him, not only without ransom but loaded 
with gifts. He was summoned to Parliament as a Baron, 
from Feb. 22, 1307,- to Sept. 18, 1322. He married 
Isabel de Ross of Igmanthorpe, in the county of York. 
He died in 1323. Children: 

i. William, his father's successor to the title as second 
Baron of the name, was summoned to Parliament 
Dec. 30, 1324, but never afterwards. He m. Kathe- 
rine Furnival, of Hallamshire. No children. He d. 
in 1341. 

ii. Robert succeeded his brother to the title. He was a 
Catholic priest, and died in 1344. 

iii. Thomas, also a clergyman. This baron being rector 
of the church of Lythun, founded a chantry of 12 
priests and 4 clerks in the parochial church there, to 
pray for the good estate of himself, Henry Lord Perci 
and for the souls of his ancestors; likewise for the 
souls of Robtirt de Thweng and Maud his wife, 
Marmaduke de Thweng and Lucy his wife, etc. He 
died in 1374, when his estates devolved upon his 
sisters as co-heirs, and the Barony of Thweng fell into 
abeyance.

THE THWING FAMILY IN AMERICA. 



BENJAMIN THWING, 

From whom all who bear the name in America are descended, 
was born in England, about 1619. He emigrated from London 
to America in April, 1635, /fy * ^ 

in the ship or vessel called ^^ ^ S^tJ ^^^^^ ^Jt?^^\c, 
« Susan & Ellen," Edward ^ <Z^ 

Payne, master, as one of the servants or apprentices of Ralph 
Hudson. His wife Deborah is reported to have come with him, 
although there is no mention of her name among the list of 
passengers. Perhaps she came in another vessel about that 
time. Her full name is at present unknown. The following is 
a list of the passengers : — - 

Ralph Hudson, aged 42. A Drap.

11. Daniel Buckley, aged 9. Jo. Corrington, aged 33. Mary 

Corrington, aged 33. 

Ralph Hudson, by will dated Sept. 24, 1638, left him ten 
pounds when his time should be out, and calls him " my man " in 
it ; and Mary Hudson, wife of Ralph, by will left him six pounds 
in 1651. About the time he became of age he married and 
made a home for himself, as in the Book of Possessions we read 
that " The possessions of Benjamin Thwing in Boston " were 
" One house and garden bounded with Sudbury streete south- 
west ; William Wilson northwest and northeast ; Joshua Scotto 
southeast." That part of Sudbury Street was afterwards in- 
cluded in Queen Street, now Court Street ; the house standing, as 
nearly as can be ascertained, where the Crawford House is. 

He was admitted to be townsman, along with others, at the 
town meeting held March 28, 1642. He was a joiner by trade, 
and a Proprietor both in Watertown and Concord, Mass. His 
wife Deborah was admitted to be a member of the First Church 
in Boston, Aug. 9, 1642, and he was admitted to the same 
church, Dec. 17, 1643; and their good example has been 
followed by a majority of their descendants. He died about 
1672, and his estate was administered upon by his wife and 
eldest son, Jan. 8, 1673. An inventory of his estate is as fol- 
lows : 

One peice of land with a small house

(3) BENJAMIN THWING 2 

(Benjamin) was born in" Boston, and always lived there. He 
was by trade a carpenter, and bought a piece of land of his 
father, as the first deed in our family in this country shows, as 
follows :

■ (13) JOHN THWING * 

(John 3 John, 2 Benjamin) was brought up to the trade of tanner 
and currier. He went to the part of Mendon, now Milford, and 
set up his trade at first in the centre, near the junction of West 
and Congress streets, between 1716 and 1718. His homestead 
must have been small, consisting perhaps of five or six acres ; and 
that he sold out about 1730, moving over to the dale near his 
father-in-law, and settling on the estate which he bought of Elder 
Nathaniel Nelson, where he spent most of his active life. This 
was bounded north on Elder Jones, east by Mill Kiver, south by 
old Sherborn road, known in that part as Post Lane, and west 
by land of one Bridges. It included the present cemetery. It 
was not a large homestead, and lay partly on both sides of the 
old drift-way from Post Lane to Elder Jones. There he had his 
dwelling-house and tannery until 1769, when he finally sold out. 
He married Mercy Jones of Mendon, now Milford, in June, 1718. 
She was born in Hull, Mass., in 1697. She was the third daugh- 
ter of Elder John Jones and his wife Sarah. They died and 
were buried in Milford, sometime after May 18, 1769, as we have

(28) NATHANIEL THWING* 

[Nathaniel* John 3 John, 2 Benjamin) married Abigail Green - 
ough in Boston, Mass., Nov. 2, 1756. He removed from Boston 
to the banks of the Kennebec sometime during the year 1757, 
and passed the following winter there. As he lived all alone, 
one of his neighbors, a Mrs. Reed, gave him a goose to eat for 
his Thanksgiving dinner, and while he was eating it he opened 
the south window and saw a bank of clouds rising, and that 
night it began to snow and snowed ail night. The river became 
frozen, and at different times the next day two men called to see 
him on snow shoes, who were the last human beings he saw that 
winter. The following year he purchased two tracts of land in 
the county of York, where he had passed the previous winter. 
The deed was dated Feb. 21, 1758. He went to the West 
Indies as a supercargo shortly after the purchase of the land, 
and returned to that part of York County now the Town of 
Woolwich about 1763, bringing his family with him. He ap- 
peared as a town officer March, 1764. Was admitted June 30, 
1765, to the church in Woolwich, where he was afterwards a 
deacon. Arnold's expedition to Canada up the Kennebec halted 
at Thwing's Point and saluted Mr. Thwing. Officers called at 
the house and were considered by the family fine looking in their 
new uniforms. At Pittston, a few miles above, they spent the 
night at a house which was still in existence a few years ago. 
He was one of the first board of overseers of Bowdoin College. 
Was appointed a justice in 1777, a councillor in 1780. Was 
appointed by Gov. John Hancock one of the justices of the 



32 THE THWING FAMILY. 

Inferior Court of Common Pleas in the County of Lincoln, Oct. 
6, 1781, also justice, of the peace by him for seven years about 
the same time. In May, 1782, he was chosen by ballot a Notary 
Public. Was appointed Register of Probate of Lincoln County 
Jan. 29, 1787. Was one of the delegates at a council of the 
church to try Mr. Poster at Hallo well, Nov. 19, 1788. Was 
chosen a representative to General Court in 1782. Was county 
treasurer in 1792, and " his removal as treasurer was heard with 
sorrow, and regret accompanied the tale from almost every per- 
son. He retired from office with the plaudits of every honest 
man, with the esteem of every virtuous one, with respect from 
all who value virtue, who can appreciate worth and regard re- 
ligion." At the election, N. Thwing had 1508 votes and I. 
Farley 1561. Was appointed one of the justices of the peace of 
Lincoln county by Gov. Caleb Strong, Feb. 10, 1803, also justice 
of the peace and quorum Aug. 22, 1809. Also to the same office 
by Gov. John Brooks for seven years from July 3, 1816, for 
Lincoln county. Judge Thwing wore a ring whose stone was in 
the shape of a coffin, in memory of a lady to whom he was en- 
gaged in Boston, but who died before they could be married. 
He was an Arminian in belief, although some say that he was 
a Congregationalist. He was very austere in some respects, one 
of which was he would not allow any work or play to be done 
on Sundays. After dinner on Thanksgiving day he never took 
tea or coffee, but Malaga wine, and this was the only occasion 
when he indulged in wine. He used to be three days and three 
nights going to Boston in his old chaise for provisions, such as 
groceries and winter stores. Once while he was returning from 
church, and while passing through some woods, he saw a bear 
sitting on his haunches in the middle of the road. Being a man 
of considerable courage he simply spoke to the bear in a com- 
manding voice and said " Soho, sir," whereupon the bear im- 
mediately got up and walked off into the woods. A short distance 
further on he saw another, which he put to flight in the same 
manner. He was an epicure, and always had the best that could 
be obtained. He left a will as follows :

(129) ISAAC THWING? 

(John," 'N&tftanicl? Nathaniel? John, 3 John, 2 Benjamin) inherit- 
ed strong traits of character, and a good share of common 
sense. He was a man of thought ; and, while forging the iron 
and shaping the steel, formed a large individuality which made 
him a worthy and useful citizen. His attachments were strong 
for his home and native town where he always resided. He was 
patriotic, never neglecting to use his influence for the cause of 
right at the ballot, and was one of the noble few who came out 
in defence of the oppressed, when the cause was an unpopular 
one. He joined the freesoil party at its formation, and rejoiced 
in its grand results. He served his townsmen as chairman of 
the board of selectmen sixteen years. Those who knew him 
best attest the fact that he sought faithfully to discharge the 
duties of the office, which were often, during the late civil war, 
laborious and difficult. He was for nearly half a century identi- 
fied with and deeply interested in the Congregationalist church, 
the oldest in town, and in which his ancestors were members 
from its formation. He married, first, Sarah White, May 11, 
1828, in Woolwich, Me. She was born there March 8, 1802,

.all man, of fine personal appearance, and possessed a remark- 
ably pleasant and genial disposition. He was greatly beloved 
both by his family and friends. Physically he was weak, but 
mentally strong, and in consideration of his intelligence his father 
designed to give him a liberal education, and placed him at the 
age of fourteen under the tutorship of Rev. Jonathan Adams of 
Woolwich, where he remained but a short time owing to his 
feeble health. He entered the store of Mr. William Jenkins as 
clerk soon after (studying with him evenings until he acquired a 
good business education), in which capacity he remained until 
his employer's death, when he took full charge of the business, 
and in a little more than two years afterwards married the widow. 
He belonged to the whig party, and his attachment was strong 
to his native place and to the church of his parents. He became 
a member of the Congregational church in Woolwich, in 1840.

(134) SUPPLY CLAP THWING 7 

(Samuel, 6 James, 5 Nathaniel* John? John, 2 Benjamin) was born 
at the corner of Horn Lane (formerly called Tanner's Lane, and 
more recently Bath Street) and Milk Street, in Boston, Mass. 
The spot is now included in what is known as Post Office 
Square. After the death of his father the family moved to High 
Street, near Summer Street, then to Columbia Street, then to 
Common Street, and then to Carver Street. He went to school 
for a short time on West Street, and in 1816 was a pupil in the 
Academy at Exeter, N. H. When he was about twenty years 
old he sailed in a vessel for Hayti, with the intention of seeking 
employment there, but not liking the prospects he returned, after 
passing a few months among the islands. He learned to speak 
French there with the help of the ladies, amongst whom he was 
always a favorite. He then went to learn the book-binders' trade 
with Mr. Kidder, whose shop was in Devonshire Street, in the 
rear of the Old Exchange Coffee House, and staid there so short 
a time that he only learnt how to tie up bundles. He then 
entered the counting room of Messrs. S. Cabot & J. & T. H. 
Perkins, Jrs., on India Wharf. He was afterwards in the counting 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 87 

room of J. & T. H. Perkins & Sons, on Central Wharf. He 
entered the office of R. D. Shepherd, Esq., in Pearl Street, Feb. 
7, 1821. He was married to Elsey Fellowes Davis, May 18, 
1824, in the house of David Dudley, Esq., in Roxbury, Mass., by 
Rev. Dr. Porter. She was a daughter of Joseph and Elsey Dud- 
ley Davis, and was born in Roxbury, Nov. 11, 1804. She died 
in Roxbury, Sept. 5, 1844, leaving no children. He began busi- 
ness on his own account about 1826, and for fifty years was 
actively engaged in mercantile pursuits. He was a director of 
the Manufacturers' Insurance Company, about 1828. In 1831 he 
formed a copartnership with Stephen H. Perkins, under the firm 
name of Thwing & Perkins, on India Wharf, and did an ex- 
tensive business with New Orleans and the East Indies. He 
was the agent in Boston of R. D. Shepherd, Judah Touro and 
Peter Marcy, three well-known merchants of New Orleans. He 
visited New Orleans with his wife in 1835 and 183T, going there 
by sea and returning by the Mississippi River and Ohio River. 
He visited Chicago in 1839. About 1844 he became the agent 
of Charles A. Heckscher, manager of the Forest Improvement 
Coal Company in Pennsylvania, for the sale of that company's 
coal in New England. Mr. Perkins retiring from the firm in 
the spring of 1845, he shortly after formed a copartnership with 
Richard Sullivan under the firm name of S. C. Thwing & Co. 
He was interested in the ownership of vessels, and was highly 
respected for his probity and honor in all matters pertaining to 
the management of his affairs. He was married to Anne Shap- 
ley Haven, June 30, 1847, in Philadelphia, Penn., by Rev. William 
Henry Furness (see No. 137). She was a daughter of Thomas 
and Mehitable Jane (Livermore) Haven, and was born in Ports- 
mouth, N. H., May 4, 1819. She was drowned in Lake George 
by the burning of the steamer "John Jay," July 29, 1856. He 
was one of the executive committee of the Roxbury Charitable 
Society in 1851-2. In January, 1857, he sailed for Europe, and 
passed six months in travel in England, France and Italy. 
He was married to Anna HaVen, cousin to his second wife, Sept. 
16, 1857 ; in Raynham ; Mass. She was a daughter of Joshua

and Mar) 7 (Cunningham) Haven, and was born Sept. 11, 1828, 
in Philadelphia, Pa. He was, for many years, an active director 
of the "Institution for Savings in Roxbury and its Vicinity," 
in the affairs of which he took great interest; and also a 
deacon of the First Religious Society in Eliot Square, Roxbury, 
and a trustee and treasurer of " The Grammar School in the 
Easterly Part of the Town of Roxbury," now known as the 
Roxbury Latin School. John Thomas was admitted to the firm 
in 1 865. Mr. Sullivan retired in 1 873, and Edward B. Townsend 
was admitted. The style of the firm remained the same until 
his death. He was an old resident of Roxbury, and it was 
among his neighbors and fellow-citizens that his truly honorable 
character was seen to the best advantage. By them he was 
universally esteemed for his unselfish devotion and loving kind- 
ness towards all classes and conditions of men. He was a 
gentleman of cordial and agreeable manners, of elegant tastes 
and culture, of warm and constant friendships, and in his inter- 
course with the world was always guided by a high sense of 
honor and integrity and purity. He will be remembered with 
affectionate regard by all who enjoyed his acquaintance. His 
entire life was marked by usefulness and activity. His com- 
mendable action in connection with the founding of the Eellowes 
Athenaeum, is well told in the following extract from the address 
of Mr. William C. Collar, at the dedication of the building, 
July 9,1873:— 

" Mr. Fellowes not unnaturally thought of the city where he had 
found a happy home for almost twenty years ; and, being in his later 
life a great reader, he designed to found there an institution which 
should be to many the means of that enjoyment and culture which he 
had himself derived from the best literature. But fortunately, before 
he was fully resolved, he asked the advice of a friend with whom he 
had lived in Roxbury, in the most intimate relations. That friend 
survives him in a vigorous old age, and he is present with us to-day. 
You all know him well, — the faithful steward of his friend's legacy to 
you, your friend and neighbor, and mine, the friend of everybody, — ■ 
Supply Clap Thwing. He said to Mr. Fellowes, — I give his own 
words, — ' My friend, your mother was born in Roxbury, and there, you 
say yourself, you passed some of the happiest years of your life. We 
want an Athenseum, and you could not leave your property, outside of 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 89 

your family, to a better object.' Few words, but fit and effective. 
For the following year, on reading the will of his friend, Mr. Thwing 
had the satisfaction of finding that his appeal was successful. ..... 

But I have omitted one circumstance, without which my account would 
be incomplete; and yet I know not if I have a right to disclose what 
was told me, perhaps in confidence, months ago, and what I dared not 
ask permission to make known, when I saw that the public interests 
demanded that the whole truth should be told. I say the ' public 
interest,' for it does concern the public to know of every noble and 
unselfish act which makes nobleness and unselfishness easier for all. 
And it is due to Mr. Thwing, though I may offend him by this disclo- 
sure, that you should know that the planting of this institution among 
you is due not less to his disinterestedness, than to his timely and pru- 
dent counsel. You will already have surmised something of what I 
had to tell you, namely, that a large part of the sum which, together 
with the accumulated interest, has been devoted to the establishment 
of this library, was by Mr. Fellowes's first will bequeathed to Mr. 
Thwing; and that it was at his urgent request, when this became 
known to him, that his friend cancelled the legacy, and increased by 
so much his bequest to you. Thus happily what the splendid gener- 
osity of the one conceived and begun, the rare unselfishness of the 
other completed and crowned; and hence, while we shall always hold 
him in grateful remembrance to whom we owe this noble benefaction, 
we shall honor in our hearts the not less noble self-sacrifice of him who 
refused wealth proffered in the name of friendship, that he might 
bestow enduring riches on us, and on those who shall come after us ; 
or, still better, that he might put it in the power of each and all of us 
to enrich ourselves." 

His death was like his life, calm and peaceful. He died June 
4, 1877, at his home on Highland Street, Roxbury. Children,

(140) THOMAS THWING 7 

(Nicholas, 6 John, 6 Thomas, 4 Edward, 3 Edward, 2 Benjamin) was 
born in Newton, Mass., and the old homestead was still standing 
in 1868, near the junction of Homer and Chestnut Streets, West 
Newton, where he spent his early boyhood. With his mother 
he was rather a favorite, though there were occasional collisions. 
He attended school but a small part of the year, nor was his 
school attractive to him even for that brief period, yet there was 
something about him, even in boyhood, which induced some of 
his friends to call him " The Little Minister." At the age of nine 
years he went at their special request to reside with his grand- 
parents. With them he passed six years. When about fifteen 
years old he went to learn a trade, that of cabinet maker, in 
Roxbury. In February, 1813, he found employment in Boston. 
He became a member of the Park Street church choir. In Sep- 
tember, 1814, during the war with England, he was called to do 
military duty one Sabbath on Boston Common. Before night he 
and his fellow soldiers were taken down the harbor to Fort 
Warren. A British vessel of war was then in sight below the 
light house. In January, 1815, he went to reside in what is now 
called West Brookfield. He became a member of the Congre- 
gational church in West Brookfield May 28, 1815. On Tuesday, 
March 4, 1817, he was married by Rev. Eliakim Phelps, to Grace 
Welch Barnes, of Brookfield. She was born Sunday, July 12, 
1789, in Brookfield. In October, 1819, he offered his services 
to the American Board to be employed, if thought best, in the 
work of Foreign Missions. He was accepted in 1 820. In April, 
1824, he removed to the village of Ware, Mass. In 1837, he 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 93 

removed to Boston, in order to engage in missionary work. He 
established his home at the North End, that part of the city which 
was his field of labor for the remainder of his life. At six o'clock, 
July 23, 1842, he went to Copp's Hill, where, with the help of a 
spy-glass, he saw the top stone of Bunker Hill Monument raised 
from the ground, and in less than forty minutes it was fixed in 
its place, where it will probably remain for ages to come. His 
wife died Thursday, Aug. 31, 1865, very suddenly, although she 
had been an invalid for many years. On Thursday, April 25, 
1867, he went out for the last time. He took a car to Charles- 
town Neck, visited an aged sister of Salem church, and walked 
back to the city, and as he was crossing the bridge towards 
evening, he was chilled by the raw, cold wind. Faint and weary 
he reached his residence, and lay down, never to rise again. He 
died Monday, .May 6, 1867, with his children around him. On 
the following Wednesday funeral services were held, first at the 
house and then at Salem church, the officers of the church officiat- 
ing as pall bearers. He is buried in Mount Auburn. Children : 

i. Harriet Newell, b. May 5, 1818, in West Brookfield, 
Mass. ; m. John Adams Plummer, March 2, 1845. She

134 THE THWING FAMILY. 

(243) HENRY THWING-' 8 

(David,' 7 James, 6 John, 6 John, 4 John, 3 John, 2 Benjamin) married 
Mrs. Sophia Geraldine Greene, Nov. 18, 1880, in Char don, Ohio. 
She was born July 6, 1837, in Verona, N. Y. Her maiden name 
was Pratt, and she was twice a widow. They live in Chardon, 
Ohio. He enlisted April 24, 1861, under the first call for 
75,000 men for three months, in Co. F, 19th Reg. 0. V. M., Capt. 
Geo. E. Paine, the regiment commanded by Col. Beaty. He was 
taken sick and was discharged Aug. 30, 1861, but re-enlisted 
Aug. 30, 1862, before he had fully regained his health, in Co. F, 
7th Reg. O. V. M., and joined his regiment at Harper's Ferry, 
Ya., Sept. 26, 1862. They remained two months in that vicinity 
drilling, doing guard duty, scouting and doing some skirmishing. 
On Dec. 10, 1862, they started on the march. They encamped 
at Dumfries, where they had quite a skirmish. In the following 
January he was sent to the hospital sick with rheumatism, and re- 
covered in April, 1863. On the 27th of that month they re- 
ceived orders to march with eight days rations. As soon as 
they were in line they were ordered on the double-quick, and as 
he was unable to keep up he fell to the rear and followed after, 
and came up with his company about half an hour after they had 
gone into camp that night. The next morning he obtained a 
pass to ride in the ambulance, but as the ambulances were all 
full he had to go on foot. He marched all day until nine o'clock 
in the evening, and encamped alone about a mile in the rear of 
his regiment. As soon as he awoke the next morning he started 
and reached the regiment just as they started. He obtained a 
certificate from the surgeon because he could not keep up, and 
sick and sore he established a hospital of his own and rested 
until about two o'clock the next day, then feeling a little better 
and learning that the army had crossed the Rappahannock and 
removed the pontoon bridge, he retraced his steps down the river 
towards the place to which they had removed the bridge. He 
marched seven or eight miles and encamped in a church, and the 
next morning started on, and just at night came opposite Chan- 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 135 

cellorsville where he could see the smoke of battle and hear the 
cannon. The next morning (May 2d) he started for the battle- 
field, crossed the river about 2 P. M., and met the regimental 
Hospital Steward in charge of a train of ambulances with 
wounded, and inquired of him where his regiment lay, but instead 
of answering him he (the steward) said that it was no place for 
him, and told him to go back across the river and stay with the 
wagon train. He started back and crossed the river, and getting 
tired sat down to rest. He did not like the idea of going back, 
so when he was rested he again started for the regiment, and 
about ten o'clock at night had the satisfaction of camping with 
the company. They had not been resting very long when they 
were aroused by cannonading which lasted only a short time, 
and then everything became quiet and they slept until daylight. 
He soon had his first experience in battle (May 3d) and it raged 
hot and heavy until 2 P. M., when they received orders to fall 
back. He was struck on the arm by a very small piece of shell, 
and soon after had his knapsack torn in pieces by a cannon shot. 
They then marched back to Acquia, staid there a few days, 
and then started north through Maryland into Pennsylvania. 
Owing to poor health he was unable to keep up, but whenever 
the army stopped he was able to overtake them. July 2d found 
them near Gettysburg. He was with the ambulance train when 
the battle began. He helped to take care of the wounded until 
after noon of the 3d, when he started for the regiment and found 
them in the breastworks about nine o'clock in the evening, ex- 
pecting to renew the fight the next morning, but Gen. Lee with- 
drew in the night, so he did not take part in that battle. Then 
he marched with the regiment to Harper's Ferry, and then to 
Rappahannock. On August 24th they were sent to New York 
harbor, and encamped on Governor's Island a little over a week. 
Then they were sent back to Virginia, and about the 25 th of 
Sept. their corps (the twelfth) were ordered to Tennessee and 
were consolidated with the eleventh, and forming the twentieth 
under Gen. Hooker. They were left along the railroad South- 
east of Murfreesborough during the month of October, then went 
18 



136 THE THWING FAMILY. 

into Wauhatchie Valley, and on Nov. 24th they drove the enemy 
off of Lookout Mountain. On the 25th they took part in the 
battle of Mission Ridge. On the 27th they had a very severe 
fight at Ringold, Ga., losing all their field officers killed, and all 
but one of the company officers either killed or wounded and a 
large part of the regiment. He was in the thickest of the fight, 
but got off without a scratch, although there were but two beside 
him left of their men for several rods. They encamped there 
one day and night, and during the second night went back to 
their winter quarters at Wauhatchie. About- the 1st of January 
they went into camp at Bridgeport, Alabama, where they staid 
until May 2d, when they left there under Gen. Sherman on his 
famous march to the sea. His regiment was held in reserve at 
the battle of Rockyface Ridge on the 7th of May. They took 
part in the battle of Resarca, Ga., on May 15th and on May 25th. 
He was on the skirmish line through the day and had a very 
severe fight, and in the evening was ordered up on a bayonet charge 
where he was struck by a piece of shell and knocked down. He 
was carried to the rear to the field hospital, and from there rode 
twenty-eight miles in an army wagon over a very rough road to 
Kingston, thence by rail to Chattanooga, and on the 2d of June 
had his wound dressed for the first time. He staid there during 
the month of June and was well taken care of. Then he was 
sent to Nashville, Tenn., where he was kept about eight days 
and experienced very poor care. He then went to Jefferson- 
ville, Indiana, where he had very indifferent care at first, but 
after several changes at length came into good hands. After 
having the gangrene burnt out of his wound he began to improve, 
but soon after had a very severe attack of his old enemy, rheu- 
matism. His wound was entirely healed in the middle of 
October. On the 1st of November he was sent into camp at 
Penison, Ohio, and obtained a furlough home just before the 
election. On Dec. 19th he was sent to Tripler Hospital near 
Columbus, Ohio ; and in March, 1865, he was sent to Washington 
to do guard duty until discharged June 28, 1865. He now draws 
a pension of four dollars per month.

(253) JAMES THWING HALE 8 

(Lovina, 7 John, 6 James, 5 John* John, 3 John 2 , Benjamin) married 
Alice Buchner, May 16, 1876. She was born in Canada in 1845. 
When he was about twenty-three years old, he entered the employ 
of Chapin & Collins, who had a large saw-mill in Somers, Conn., 
and, after working there six months, he took entire charge. 
Chapin sold out, but he remained there until the spring of 1861, 
when he removed to the state of New York, and worked in 
various places until the fall of the same year, when he enlisted 
in what he supposed to be a company of sharpshooters, to be 
attached to the Eagle Brigade, about to be raised by Gen. G. A. 
Scroggs. His company was to be raised by Joshua Lee. Neither 
company, regiment nor brigade were raised, but he and his 
fellow soldiers were sold to Charles E. Morse, who commanded 
Company I, 100th Reg. N. Y. Volunteers. They were at Fort 
Porter, just out of the city of Buffalo, until March 8, 1862, when 
they left for the seat of war, passing through Albany, New 
York city and Washington. He was appointed corporal in his 
company, and remained so until he was discharged, his appoint- 
ment dating from the day of his enlistment, Aug. 9, 1861. They 
were attached to the first battalion, First Brigade, under Gen.

Casey. They staid in Washington two or three weeks, and 
then went to Alexandria and took a steamer for Fortress Mon- 
roe, and there joined Gen. McClellan in his Virginia campaign. 
They were ordered to assist in the siege of Yorktown, Va., and 
then to take part in the battle of Williamsburg, but reached 
there just in time to see the enemy leaving town. They took 
part in the battles of Bottom Bridge, Fair Oaks or Seven Pines, 
White Oak Swamp, and in almost all the battles and skirmishes 
which occurred in Virginia, in 1862. When the retreat occurred 
they went back to Yorktown, and then crossed the river to 
Gloucester Point, and remained there until the following January, 
recruiting their thinned ranks. While there they were adopted 
by the Board of Trade of the city of Buffalo as their own 
regiment, and the board spent considerable money upon them 
and sent them a new colonel, because their first one (J. M. Brown) 
had been killed at Fair Oaks. About the first of January, 
1863, they were ordered to North Carolina, to report to Major 
General Foster, for the purpose of reinforcing him as he was 
going to attack Charleston, S. C. They went to Morehouse 
City, N. C, and staid there two or three weeks, and then started 
for South Carolina, and having a stormy passage, arrived at 
Hilton Head in two days, and were kept on the transport about 
three weeks before they were allowed to land on an island 
opposite Hilton Head, where they remained a month, and receiv- 
ing new rifles led the advance upon Charleston, and for a 
week were the only regiment upon Cole's Island. Their regi- 
ment took part in all the skirmishes and battles around Charles- 
ton until the spring of 1864, when they were ordered north to 
Fortress Monroe to help Gen. B. F. Butler. They were sent 
up James River to Bermuda Hundred, where he took part in 
skirmishes until the sixteenth of May, when during a heavy fog 
and while upon the skirmish line he was surrounded by the 
enemy and taken prisoner. He was confined in Libby Prison, 
Andersonville, Charleston and Florence, S. C, the longest time 
being in Andersonville. He was a prisoner about nine months, 
and was paroled about the time Gen. Sherman captured Savan-

nah, being included in an agreement to parole ten thousand sick 
and wounded. The horrors of Andersonville having been told 
so often, it is unnecessary to repeat them here, but he fully con- 
firms them from actual experience. After his discharge he went 
to Little Rock, Arkansas, as a mechanic in the Quartermaster's 
department, where he remained about ten months, and then went 
to East Saginaw, Michigan, where he has lived nearly all the 
time since. He was a carpenter and joiner until July, 1873, 
when he was appointed mail route agent on the Flint and Pere 
Marquette Railway from Bay City, Michigan, to Toledo, Ohio. 
He has also served on the fast mail train, and on the route 
between Buffalo, N. Y., and Toledo, Ohio. He is now on the 
route between Bay City and Toledo. He has no children.

He took part in the first six days fighting around Richmond, also

(329) WALTER ELIOT THWING 8 

(Supply? Samuel? James? Nathaniel? John? John? Benjamin) 
is the author of this Genealogy, and was born in a boarding house 
kept by Mrs. Atkins in Cedar St., Roxbury, Mass., and for many 
years she sent him a birthday cake. In 1855 he went to a private 
school kept by the Misses Watson in St. James St., Roxbury, 
and in 1857 to one kept by Miss Williams, and afterwards by 
Miss Lewis. In 1861 he entered the Roxbury Latin School, and 
was graduated in 1868, when he entered Harvard College, stay- 
ing only through Freshman year. In August, 1869, he entered 
the counting-room of his father as clerk. On Dec. 26, 1870, he 
sailed in the ship "Daniel Marcy," Captain. William Ross, Jr., 
from New York bound for San Francisco. The only lands seen 
on the voyage were the Island of Ferdinand Noranha, off 
Brazil, Feb. 11, 1871 ; Cape St. Diego, at the extremity of Terra 
del Fuego, March 23, 1871 ; Cape Horn, a couple of days later, 
and Cape Reyes, off the coast of California, the day of arrival at 
San Francisco. About half past seven in the morning of Jan. 
31, 1871, all hands were aroused by the dreadful cry of "man 
overboard," caused by a boy falling overboard from the main 
chains, and in a very few minutes all were on deck. The 
Captain threw the wooden gratings on which the man at the 
wheel stands to the boy, who luckily reached them and held on 
until rescued. A boat was lowered, and, manned by four men 
under the charge of the mate, rescued the boy about a mile from 
the ship. A man had already been stationed in the mizzen rig- 



172 THE THWING FAMILY. 

ging to keep the lad in sight. He was nearly drowned and in- 
sensible, and was hauled up on deck feet first, in order to let the 
water which he had swallowed flow out of him. In a couple of 
days he was all right. Luckily the sea was as smooth as it ever 
is. One day in a heavy sea one of the sailors harpooned a 
porpoise, about nine feet long, and after some difficulty several 
men succeeded in hauling him on deck, and he furnished all hands 
with fresh meat for several days. The flesh is a little like beef, 
only coarser, and not so easy to digest. On May 14, 1871, a 
large shark was caught with a chain hook baited with pork, and 
all hands hauled him on deck. Just before he reached the rail 
a loop at the end of a long rope was passed around him under 
his fin, to serve to hold him in case he broke loose from the hook, 
and with a portion of the crew manning both ropes he was 
safely hauled over the rail and upon the main deck, where he 
lashed his tail for some time, every one keeping at a safe distance, 
leaving him the sole occupant of the deck, because a blow from 
his tail might have broken a man's leg. It took a long time to 
kill him, as he was very tenacious of life and was well cut up 
before he died. He must have been ten feet long. This was 
an exciting incident. One night a boat from an English emigrant 
ship boarded the " Daniel Marcy " for the purpose of ascertaining 
whether England had been drawn into the war then going on 
between France and Germany, and on learning to the contrary 
proceeded on its way. Several times on the voyage a dolphin 
was caught, which brings to mind that 

parting day 



Dies, like the Dolphin, whom each pang imbues 

With a new color as it gasps away, 

The last still loveliest, till — 't is gone — and all is grey." 

He arrived in San Francisco after a passage of one hundred 
and seventy days. He passed three months in California, and 
visited Los Angelos in the southern part, enjoying the extensive 
and beautiful orange groves in its suburbs, and the Yo Semite 
Valley in the central part. The vast extent of the latter can 
only be appreciated by those who have seen it. When the trav- 



EIGHTH GENERATION. 173 

eller first reaches the bottom of the valley he does not realize its 
size, nor does he until he has been there several days. It is so 
symmetrical that nothing seems out of proportion, and is sublime 
and wonderful. At the best point of view from above, the sides 
of the valley are four thousand feet deep, and a man on horseback 
at the bottom looks no larger than a housefly. The excursions 
are numerous and varied, and everywhere full of interest. 
The noise of the falls is heard on all sides, and when the 
streams are full, as they are in spring, the noise is perfectly 
deafening. It is the largest and grandest valley in the world. 
He sailed from San Francisco Sept. 30, 1871, in the steamer 
" Great Republic," Capt. Cobb, for Japan, where he passed a 
couple of weeks visiting the ports of Yokohama, Yedo, Kobe 
and Nagasaki, in which he found many curious customs and sights. 
Then he visited in turn Shanghai, Hong-Koog and Canton in 
China; Singapore, where the tropical scenery can be found in 
all its beauty ; Penang, a small island where a great many 
cocoanut palms are seen, the oil of which being one of the chief 
exports ; Point de Galle, in the island of Ceylon, where all 
the steamer lines meet to exchange passengers and cargoes, and 
which is a great deal hotter than Singapore, although several 
degrees farther from the equator ; Bombay, about six miles from 
which is the island of Elephanta, containing the celebrated caves 
of that name, the first series of which is reached from the shore 
by ascending one hundred and fourteen steps, and consists of a 
large cavern whose roof was formerly supported by thirty pil- 
lars, some of them being broken. Opening into this are several 
caves, in one of which there is a pond of good water. The 
walls are in places ornamented by figures between twenty and 
thirty feet in height, which are surrounded by smaller ones, ser- 
pents and heads of animals. Each of the other series of caves 
had a main hall into which smaller ones opened. All about the 
caves had the appearance of great age. He afterwards crossed 
the country to Calcutta, where there is a mint, and near which 
are some botanical gardens in which the largest banyan tree 
known to be in existence is growing. He next visited Benares, 



174 THE THWING FAMILY. 

the holy city of India, where the celebrated Monkey Temple is 
situated, and where also is the residence of a Nabob who keeps 
some of the largest elephants in the world, and allows strangers 
to ride on them. He next visited Allahabad, the scene of terrible 
carnage at the time of the Sepoy rebellion, and containing a fort 
under which there is a temple ; then returned to Bombay, from 
whence he sailed for Egypt, stopping for a few hours at Aden, 
celebrated for its tanks, to which water is a stranger, and for 
its fine roads and multitudes of camels ; then to Suez, a miser- 
able looking town, only used as a stopping place for steamers to 
and from the East. He then went to Cairo and Alexandria* in 
Egypt; Messina in Sicily; through Italy, Austria, Germany, 
Switzerland, Belgium to Paris, and then through England and 
Scotland home to Boston, having been the youngest man who 
had ever been round the world alone up to that time. He 
reached his home Oct. 16, 1872, having been absent nearly two 
years. In January, 1878, he sailed for Jamaica, where he 
passed two months. He lived in Highland Street, Roxbury, 
until 1878, when he moved to Jamaica Plain, Mass., a part of 
Roxbury before it was annexed to Boston, and back to Rox- 
bury in 1881. He was elected a resident member of the New 
England Historic Genealogical Society, and became a life mem- 
ber Jan. 7, 1880. He was elected a member of the Bostonian 
Society, March 14, 1882. He is unmarried, and is a Unitarian.

in Co. A, 36th Illinois Infantry Volunteers. About Sept. 1, 

1861, he was appointed second sergeant of the company. They 
24

were in Gen. Sigel's Division of Gen. S. Curtis's army operating 
in Missouri, and took part in the battle of Pea Ridge. His 
regiment took part in the siege of Corinth, Miss., as a part of 
Gen. Asboth's Division of Gen. Pope's Corps, and shortly after 
this were placed under Gen. P. H. Sheridan's command, who had 
just been commissioned a Brig. General and given a Division. 
His Division was ordered to Cincinnati, and from there to Louis- 
ville, Ky., to aid in repelling Gen. Bragg's advance northward. 
His regiment took part in the battle of Parryville, Ky., and 
met with heavy loss. The regiment was stationed at Nashville, 
Tenn., where he was appointed first sergeant, and about two 
months after, his next battle was at Murfreesboro', Tenn., the 
battle of Stone River, in which the Division took a very promi- 
nent part and met with severe loss. His regiment lost nearly 
one-half its fighting force. Shortly after the battle of Stone 
River he received commissions of second and first lieutenants of 
his Company (about March, 1863). His Division was with the 
army in the advance on Tallahoma and Chattanooga, Tenn. ; and 
in September, 1863, he was appointed to the command of a pro- 
vost guard at Gen. A. M. McCook's headquarters, the commander 
of his army corps. About Aug. 1, 1863, owing to his mother's 
urgent solicitations, supplemented with letters from other rela- 
tives, he was induced to tender his resignation as first lieutenant ; 
but September arriving, and nothing being heard from the resig- 
nation, he concluded to remain in the service, and accordingly 
obtained leave to visit Winchester, Tenn., and lay in a new sup- 
ply of clothing. On Sept. 23, he received his resignation papers 
endorsed accepted. They had been laid aside and not received 
until six weeks after they should have been. After his return 
home he began to study medicine, but gave it up owing to ill 
health. About September, 1867, he became engaged in mer- 
chandizing, but soon sold out fearing a loss. In January, 1875, 
he became connected with a general advertising firm in Chicago, 
but ill health compelled him to seek out-door employment, and 
he concluded to undertake sheep raising, living in Bunker Hill, 
Kansas, and has been so far very successful in raising sheep.
